malfunction
accumulation of linoleoyl (18:2) groups at the expense of linolenoyl groups (18:3) is the only substantial difference in membrane lipid biosynthesis in leaves and roots of fad3-2 plants relative to wild type
metabolism
regulation of the enzyme through synergistic and antagonistic hormonal interactions, overview

fatty acid profile of wild-type and fad3 mutant roots in response to several plant hormones, overview

the enzyme contains the conserved His box of plant omega-3 FA desaturase. One amino acid residue, Asn or Ser, is different at 61 position of PfrFAD3-1 and PfrFAD3-2, respectively. Both PfrFAD3-1 and -2 have the function of omega-3 FA desaturases; the enzyme contains the conserved His box of plant omega-3 FA desaturase. One amino acid residue, Asn or Ser, is different at 61 position of PfrFAD3-1 and PfrFAD3-2, respectively. Both PfrFAD3-1 and -2 have the function of omega-3 FA desaturases
physiological function
OMEGA-3 fatty acid desaturase converts exogenous arachidonic acid, an OMEGA-6 PUFA, into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Gene sdd17 from EPA-rich fungus is expressed at high levels and increases OMEGA-3 fatty acid concentrations in mammalian cells
physiological function
the omega-3 FAD gene expression product and its enzymatic product C18:3n3 are crucial to the microalgae cell system
physiological function
tomato endoplasmic reticulum-type omega-3 fatty acid desaturase functions in early seedling tolerance to salinity stress
